Some rules for us and you

We want to be clear about how we collect your information, what exactly we collect, and what we do with it. Please review the information below, and don't forget, if you're a member, you can manage your preferences in your member area.

We want you to have the best experience with us

To get the most from Unique you need to be aware of all the special promotions, gifts, discounts and other personal surprises we prepare exclusively for you. However, in order for us to tell you about everything and offer you the best benefits, we need your permission to communicate to you, and your consent to process your personal preferences and purchase habits. All the data we collect and process about you helps us deliver an experience that is relevant and tailor-made to you.

At the same time, we want to be clear about how we collect data, what exactly we collect, and what we do with it. Our goal is to provide you with as much transparency and control as possible. That's why we've created these pages and a secure Member Area for you, so that you can manage your personal information and preferences at any time. To support our vision and promise to you, we have developed three key principles that we at Unique by Ermes live by when collecting and using our members' information.

1. When we ask for data, it's to give something back

When you provide us with basic information like your name, mobile number, age and language preference, we use it in combination with your purchase habits to deliver not only relevant news about products and services, but to also personalise your experience with us and be useful to you.

So by keeping your data, and with your consent to process it, you'll get exclusive personal deals and discounts that no one else, not even other members are offered. Just imagine going to the store and hearing a cashier say “the price for this item is usually 100 Euros, but for you it's only 75”.

2. You know about the data we keep, and what we do with it

We have worked hard to develop clear, easy-to-read Terms of Use, and a Privacy Notice, which explains what we do with your data. In summary, we use information on how people use our rewards programme, websites and applications, in order to learn how we can improve your experience and the services we provide. As mentioned above, by understanding what you like, we can recommend relevant offers and personalise your shopping experience. We will also use this knowledge to create more special offers and services we think you'll love.

We also obtain additional information about you from our analytics team and partners in order to understand more about how and when you use our products and services - for example, what you bought from a retail store and when. Our Cookies Statement has more detail on this and can also help if you want to manage your cookies. When you register for the Member Area you'll be able to manage your data and be in full control of all your personal information.

3. You are in full control of your data

After you've registered for the Member Area, you can amend your personal details and preferences whenever you want, and if you ever want to remove the details you've given us, we'll wipe them from our system and you'll never hear from us again. When we remove your data we'll also anonymise any personal information we might hold on you, which means we won't be able to recognise that data as yours. We respect your personal information and we promise to handle it securely. We'll never sell it to anyone and we won't clutter your email or mobile with stuff you don't want.

If at any time you don't want to continue receiving relevant targeted advertising on our websites and applications after you have closed your account, we recommend that you also delete any cookies set on your device. Again, our Cookies Statement can help if you want to know how to manage your cookies.

The above principles form the vision of offering a transparent and beneficial service to you, where you are in control every step of the way. And that's a promise.

Terms & Conditions (Unique by Ermes)

These terms and conditions govern ‘Unique by Ermes’ rewards programme (thereinafter the “Programme”) operated by ULS UNIQUE LOYALTY SERVICES LTD, under which members earn rewards points (thereinafter the “Points”) via their purchases and receive additional benefits in accordance with the terms below.

By participating in the Programme, you acknowledge that you have read and agreed to be bound by these terms and conditions.

Participation to the Programme is open only to qualified Clients, selected by ULS UNIQUE LOYALTY SERVICES LTD, at its absolute discretion.

Membership

Membership to this Programme is open to people who are 18 years or older.

On joining the Programme, each member (thereinafter the “Member”) will be assigned a Unique membership number (thereinafter the “Membership Number”) which will be the same as the mobile number provided during registration.

Membership Numbers are limited to one per person and are for personal use by the Member only. Membership Numbers cannot be shared or distributed or used for commercial purposes.

ULS UNIQUE LOYALTY SERVICES LTD reserves the right to suspend or cancel Membership Numbers, any benefits, or membership to the Programme, if ULS UNIQUE LOYALTY SERVICES LTD believes the Member and/or Membership Number is not being used in accordance with these terms and conditions.

Collecting Points

Members earn both Reward Points and Status Points on qualifying purchases at the Programme participating stores (as stated below in ‘Qualifying Purchases’), which depend on the Members’ participation level (ULS UNIQUE LOYALTY SERVICES LTD “Level”) as defined by their Status Points collection. Please, see the FAQs section on unique-ermes.com.cy for further details. ULS UNIQUE LOYALTY SERVICES LTD reserves the rights to substitute and/or change these Levels at any time in its discretion.

Only Reward Points can be redeemed. Status Points determine a Member’s level, as described below in ‘Unique levels and benefits’.

Any increased Reward Points per €1 spent will take effect on the day after the purchase which takes a Member’s expenditure into a higher threshold and the increased points will not apply retrospectively to any of the previous day’s purchases within that higher threshold.

In order to collect Points, Members must mention their Membership Number at the time of payment.

Points are credited in accordance with one of three different product categories:

  • 4 points for every €1 spent on Beauty - Fragrances, Makeup and Skincare
  • 2 points for every €1 spent on Fashion - Clothing, Footwear, and Fashion Accessories
  • 2 points for every €1 spent on Home & Seasonal - Furniture, Furnishings and Accessories, Toys, and Seasonal items such as Easter/Christmas products
  • 1 point for every €1 spent on DIY & Home Improvement
  • 1 point for every €1 spent on Food & Groceries
  • 1 point for every €1 spent on Eating Out

Requests to collect Points from transactions at a time later than that of the respective transaction will be granted only if made within 30 days from the day of purchase and only upon demonstration of the receipt.

If a Member is given a refund or other financial adjustment on any transaction, the Member’s Points balance will be adjusted according to their final transaction.

The maximum number of Reward Points a member can earn within 12 months is 15,000.

Qualifying purchases

Members can earn Points on purchases made at any of the Programme’s participating stores.

For a full list of stores, please see the Store Directory section on unique-ermes.com.cy, or contact our Customer Service Department team.

Points redemption

Reward Points will be credited onto the Member’s account and shown in their Member Area. Reward Points are available for redemption at any time, within a period of 12 months from the day they were credited. Any remaining Reward Points after this period will become void and cannot be redeemed.

Reward Points may be redeemed in full or part in batches of 500 at checkout upon demonstration of a form of personal ID. For every 500 points, €2.50 is deducted from the Member’s bill, given that the bill (before points deduction) is higher than the total value of the points to be redeemed.

Any refunds or financial adjustment made to a purchase using Reward Points will be credited to the Member’s Points balance (or account).

Unique levels and benefits

Members will participate in different Levels according to their total accumulation of Status Points. There are three Levels in this Programme: White, Red and Black.

For details about the minimum required amount of Status Points to be accumulated in order to advance to or sustain participation in each Level, please see below.

White level - Reward Points earned are not multiplied
From the date a Member joins Unique, they need to accumulate 1,500 Status Points within 12 months to advance to Red, otherwise their Status Points are reset to zero.

Red level - Reward Points earned are multiplied x2
From the moment Members reach Red, they need to accumulate 1,500 Status Points within 6 months to advance to Black.
From the moment Members reach Red, they need to accumulate 750 Status Points within 6 months, to remain in Red for the following 6-month period, otherwise they will be demoted to White.

Black level - Reward Points earned are multiplied x4
From the moment Members reach Black, they need to accumulate 1,500 Status Points within 6 months, to remain in Black for the following 6-month period, otherwise they will be demoted to Red.

Members are guaranteed to stay in any upper level (Red/Black) for a minimum of 6 months. That is, if a Member reaches the Red level on 10 March, they will stay at this level until 9 September of the same year. Status Points cannot be redeemed, nor are they multiplied according to the level a Member is in. Status Points will be reset to zero whenever a Member advances up or down through a level. Members have 12 months from their joining date to try to advance, otherwise Status Points will be reset to zero.
